Abstract(E)The sintering mechanism of Pd particles on the three way catalyst (TWC) was investigated by aberration-corrected environmental transmission electron microscopy (ETEM) which enabled us to measure under high temperature and simulated gas condition including H2, CO (as a reductant agent) and O2 (as an oxidant agent). In reducing condition over 900 degC, migration and aggregation of the Pd particles on Al2O3 were observed using ETEM. On the other hand, in oxidizing condition over 800 degC, we observed not only growing of the Pd particles but also becoming far smaller size particles and dispersion. In addition, it was found out that PdO existed in oxidizing condition. Hence we presumed that the growing of the Pd particles under oxidizing condition was due to re-aggregation of dispersed PdO nanoparticles. We studied the effect of the sintering of the Pd particles on a Pd-loaded support. The Pd particles on Matrix-B which suppressed oxidization of Pd kept smaller size than them on Matrix-A which advanced oxidized Pd.

About search


How to use the search box

You can enter up to 5 search conditions. The number of search boxes can be increased or decreased with the "+" and "-" buttons on the right.
If you enter multiple words separated by spaces in one search box, the data that "contains all" of the entered words will be searched (AND search).
Example) X (space) Y → "X and Y (including)"

How to use "AND" and "OR" pull-down

If "AND" is specified, the "contains both" data of the phrase entered in the previous and next search boxes will be searched. If you specify "OR", the data that "contains" any of the words entered in the search boxes before and after is searched.
Example) X AND Y → "X and Y (including)"  X OR Z → "X or Z (including)"
If AND and OR searches are mixed, OR search has priority.
Example) X AND Y OR Z → X AND (Y OR Z)
If AND search and multiple OR search are mixed, OR search has priority.
Example) W AND X OR Y OR Z → W AND (X OR Y OR Z)

How to use the search filters

Use the "search filters" when you want to narrow down the search results, such as when there are too many search results. If you check each item, the search results will be narrowed down to only the data that includes that item.
The number in "()" after each item is the number of data that includes that item.
